Memoirs of a Jew born in 1932 in Budapest. In 1941 Salamon's father was drafted into a military labor service unit. After the Nazi takeover in 1944, Salamon and his mother were forced to live in a "Jewish house" in a Budapest suburb. Salamon managed to obtain the papers of a young Nazi and hid among his "comrades" until discovered; he was saved from death by Zionists who were also masquerading as Nazis. His father was saved by Raoul Wallenberg. The family, including his brother Mordi, who had been in hiding, hid in a lumberyard together during the last weeks before the liberation.
